Q. What’s the difference between Reiki and Healing Touch Therapy?

A. Both are energy modalities and use energy to heal the body, mind, and soul; however, they are different in the manner they are learned and performed. Let’s start with Reiki. When learning to use Reiki energy, the student must receive three attunements from a Reiki master/teacher. The techniques taught are simple and can be used however they’re needed once the attunements have been given. There are a few hand positions to help the user channel the energy, and these are often done hovering over the patient’s body instead of actually touching the patient. The movements are not standardized so that the Reiki user can channel the energy as needed by the patient. With Healing Touch Therapy, there are no attunements to go through, but the user must attend classes on the different hand positions, since these are more standardized and specific to different ailments than the Reiki positions. There are more positions to learn with Healing Touch Therapy, and students must become familiar with the chakras and twelve meridians of the body to perform Healing Touch Therapy. Both practices are actually used in hospitals to aid with the healing processes of their patients.

Q.  How long does a Level I Reiki Class last and what can I expect?

A. Class starts at 8 AM and usually last until 7 PM.  By the end of a level 1 class you would be able to work on yourself and give a full 1 hour session to another.

Everyone experiences something different.  It can enhance your self awareness.

Q. What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?

A. Jin Shin Jyutsu is the art of knowing and helping yourself.   Working with 26 Safety Energy Locks within the body, Jin Shin Jyutsu can release blockages in your energy system.  It creates body awareness and with self help techniques, you can help keep the blocked areas open.

Q. What hours are you available?

A. I work by appointment only. I schedule appointments as follows:

  • Monday, Wednesday and Fridays 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays:  7:30 AM to 3:30 PM
  • 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month 7:30 AM to noon.

Times and days are subject to change as life dictates.

Q.  How long do you recommend between Level I and Level II Reiki?

A.   I like to give at least 5 to 6 months between Level I and II.  This gives the new practitioner time to practice and get comfortable about giving a session and “feeling” different energies.

Q. When you do a Bioenergetic assessment, what are you looking for?

A.  Initially I’m listening to your body to see if the body is communicating on a cellular level.  How is your digestion? How is your elimination practice etc.  Once we establish a baseline, I start you on a homeopathic Regimen. The first part is cleaning the system, then detoxify, then repair.

Q.  What are your fees for teaching Tai Chi?

A.  If you join our Thursday evening class the fee is a free will donation.  The donation is given to a local charity every six to eight weeks.

Q. Do you offer private Tai Chi sessions?

A.  Yes,  If you want private sessions, the fee is 70.00 per hour.

Q.  Do you have to sign a contract for your Martial Arts class?

A.  No.  You pay month by month.
